Boomkat Product Review:
True Detroit original Marcellus Pittman (3 Chairs, Rotating Assembly) makes up for his radio silence since 2014 with two twysts on bustling, tracky jackers templates dispensed thru his Unirhythm label.
One of those 313 cats who hears jazz, house and techno as indivisible aspects of the same thing, Pittman puts that style into practice with the crafty as fuck, off-the-cuff drum machine and bassline calculations of Revenge For Nothing, juicing his groove to death with wicked stop-start patterns and sparing FX that sounds something like Larry Heard caught in a tumble dryer with Beatrice Dillon.
With Red Dogon Star on the B-side Pittman pushes a wonkier, spaced-out permutation of Afro-cubist house, synching inimitably grubbing acid bass and percolated drums in hypnotic pattern gilded with golden synth pads. A subtle masterclass in minimalist efficiency with body ready results.
